Baldur’s Gate 3, the long-awaited sequel to BioWare‘s acclaimed RPG franchise, was shown during the Guerrilla Collective Live event, featuring our first look at gameplay and its plan for a possible Early Access in August. The trailer above features pre-alpha footage and substantial changes in comparison to earlier installments. However, the development team says due to COVID-19, reaching that August benchmark for Early Access may be in jeopardy.

“COVID-19 has impacted the Larian team as it has many people around the world,” Larian Studios said in a news release. “But the shift to work-from-home has gratefully been a successful one, allowing Larian to continue building toward an early access period of (maybe!) August. Larian will have more information about the specific content of early access in the future, but the team is committed to working directly with community feedback to evolve the game during its early access campaign.”

So far, tweaks have been made to the game’s initiative system to make combat more immersive and the narration has been altered due to feedback from beta players. The Baldur’s Gate franchise had been slumbering about for over a decade before both of the original titles received enhanced versions in 2012 and 2013, respectively. The original Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate 2 were recently packaged together and ported to the Nintendo Switch.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has been announced for both PC and Google Stadia thus far, and as developer Larian Studios previously noted, it could receive Early Access by August.
